hi jeff,
downloading is not a problem. the issue is how to import this file in the bibliographic program like Endnote.
further, will be great to have search connector to archive.org for most common bibliographic programs.
i am not familiar with xml enough to do it myself, but i am sure there must be a large group of users wishing to do the same.

If I understood your other question correctly, you wish to import search results directly into EndNote.

For this, you would have to create a custom XML import filter, after all! Linked below is a nice 3-page tutorial about creating one.

To get the results in XML, on the Advanced Search page, select the (i) ‘XML format’ and ‘save to file’ options, and (ii) select the desired fields from the panel on its left.

(To have to not do it everytime you search, you should note the URL thus generated, and edit the URL to do the search in future. The URL would look something like [3].)

I suspect that you do not need an import filter for importing the *meta.mrc file. There should be an option saying something like ‘import MARC record’, and you should feed it the *.mrc file downloaded from IA. (You should be importing the *meta.mrc file, and not the *.marc.xml, or the *.meta.xml.)

There is only one MARC format; you do not need special interpreters for MARC data offered by different sources.

At any rate, I am almost certain that the Library of Congress’ import filter would work with the *meta.mrc file. (The LoC filter probably has the complete set of fields, and therefore, should be equivalent to a vanilla MARC import filter.) You can download the import filter on the following page.
